About Lolo National Forest
Lolo National Forest is located in Montana's Big Sky Country, and the crest of Bitterroot Mountains forms the western boundary of this forest, separating Montana from Idaho. The municipality of Missoula in western Montana is surrounded by forest, as is the city of Lolo, the largest city in Montana with about 2,000 inhabitants.
The eastern border of the forest is defined by the continental divide or scapegoat wilderness between the Bitterroot Mountains and Great Basin National Park in Idaho and Montana.
The topography varies from densely forested ridges and gentle meadows to remote high alpine lakes and torrents, from remote Alps to lakes. The Rattlesnake National Recreation Area offers many recreational opportunities right on the edge of Missoula. Four major rivers and streams offer some of the best fishing in the Rocky Mountains (see HREF). The R1 flows into the Great Basin National Park, the Yellowstone River and the Columbia River in Montana and Idaho.
